Applications are now open to Bachelor students in the SADC region for INISA scholarships to cover up to 75% of tuition fees and related costs for the academic year 2020 at a higher education institution in the SADC region. Applications are open until 19 September 2020.

INISA is a German Non-Governmental Organisation founded in 1995. Their mission is to inform the German public on political, economical, social and cultural developments in Southern Africa to create interest, deepen understanding and enhance contacts and
exchange between Germany and Southern Africa.

The INISA Student Grant 2020

The INISA grant covers 75% of tuition fees and related costs (e.g. books and other study material; residence fees etc.) for the academic year of 2020 up to a maximum amount of Euro 3000 (or the equivalent in local currency).

The applicant (m/f/d) should

  • hold the nationality of one of the SADC countries;
  • study full time at a University or other tertiary education institution in one of the
    SADC countries;
  • be in the second or third year of his or her undergraduate studies, i.e. s/he has successfully completed at least one year of studies and has successfully reregistered for further courses in the next academic year. Please note: the INISA Student Grant is not applicable to postgraduate studies such as Honours, Masters or PhD programs.

The grant is open to students of all subjects, but particularly we encourage applications by science, engineering, economics and medical students. Should the grant be awarded to more than one student the maximum amount will be split equally. INISA requires the student to provide proof of tuition related expenses with a fees account record, as the grant amount covers a percentage of these expenses and needs to be calculated on that basis before any payment is possible. The grant will be paid directly into the student’s fees account at the University. INISA requires the student to provide two reports on the progress of his/her studies in the year s/he is awarded the grant.
